new single from The Last Shadow Puppets

The Last Shadow Puppets are a collaboration between Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner and Miles Kane (Little Flames, Rascals). Discovering a shared appreciation of early Bowie the two devised an ambitious take on 60′s symphonic-pop whose best moments bring to mind Love meets The Yardbirds with Enio Morricone and John Barry flourishes without sounding pretentious (despite the presence of 22-piece London Metropolitan Orchestra). At it’s worst it sounds like the Arctics with strings, still an interesting proposition. To his credit Turner retains his boyish, angry young Brit vocal style rather than trying to mime early Scott Walker. The second single from their fabulous debut, The Age Of The Understatement, features 2 non-album tracks. My favorite of the two, “Hang The Cyst”, has a nifty psych guitar freakout tacked onto the end that stretches it to twice the length of anything else they’ve recorded so far.

Give it a listen:

Hang The Cyst

The next single, “My Mistakes Were Made For You” will be out October 20th and will feature an exclusive live orchestrated version of the band’s “Separate And Ever Deadly” plus live cover versions of the Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra classic ‘Paris Summer’ and the Burt Bacharach penned, Love covered ‘My Little Red Book’.

All this fabulous music is available on Domino Records.

Quick note about the tunes

The mp3s on this blog are to give folks a little taste. Imagine they're those little pouches on the bag your Sunday paper comes in. You know, the one's with a packet containing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth once or twice. They are left up for a limited time. If you find something you like support the artists by dragging your friends to their shows and/or buying their CDs/records/schwag. If you are the artist (or their label/representative) and don't want an mp3 on here, please email me (mike@nowhearthismusic.com) and I'll remove it posthaste.
